I had a great time in Arizona last week.
What I learned from the Jarmans' FRC:
1. Every young man should be an Eagle Scout. It shows a lot about his character and dedication, not to mention it impresses fathers of would-be girlfriends.
2. Spontaneous group sing-a-longs are both spontaneous and sing-a-long-y. (And once you get started, it's hard to get back on track.)
3. Keeping your shirt on is difficult for some people, no matter how public or embarrassing the location may be.
4. If you believe in yourself, you can do it!
5. You're never too young to heckle a blonde singer-songwriter singing in your back yard.
A letter to Laura Freebairn:
How can I get into your preschool? Is there an age limit? I know a lot of people who could write a letter of recommendation for me. I'm really good with finger paints, singing with a group spontaneously (see above lessons learned), and eating play-doh. I already feel at home in your house, so I won't cry when my caregiver drops me off.
Why EAC is the MVP:
Copper (Tink!) Cotton (Ahhh!) and Cows (Moo, moo, moo, moo). I may lay my head on a pillow in California, but my heart will forever sleep in Thatcher.
I always count myself fortunate when I am among Arizonians. Until the next time...
Long live the Gila!
P.S. See more pictures from my trip to AZ in my photo album!
